Advantest introduced the HF-AWGD (high-frequency arbitrary waveform generator and digitizer) module to extend the capabilities of its EVA100 measurement platform. With this module, the EVA100 system can measure key parameters of mixed-signal, precision and standard analog semiconductors used in applications such as on-board automotive electronics.
Equipped with both a dual-channel arbitrary waveform generator and digitizer, the HF-AWGD module is an analysis tool for precision devices such as 16-bit ADCs and operational amplifiers. The module employs intuitive software and high-speed sampling to generate waveforms by either AWG mode (wave pattern file base) or pattern generator mode (without using wave pattern files). It offers an harmonic distortion of -102 dB.
The waveform memory can capture samples while the built-in digitizer provides coverage across a wide input range.
Advantest’s EVA100 system uses the same test sequences for both design and production measurements, enabling users to establish a standardized measurement environment throughout their operations. This contributes to shorter time to market by allowing semiconductor manufacturers to avoid spending time and resources correlating test data from different systems.
